on this issue. coal or energy in general. >> one obama campaign ad running in coal country goes after a romney ad, and the coal miners at an event. >> it turns out they were told that attendance at romney's rally was "mandatory." it ends with the line mitt romney is not one of us. these coal miners in west virginia -- >> feel that the industry is under attack? >> definitely. absolutely. 100%. >> yeah. >> i'm 53. i have been doing it for 31 years and i had kids and it makes me angry. why would the federal government want to eliminate all of our jobs at this time in the recession? we're providing cheap electricity for the united states. pride thing with us. coal miners are proud people. we're proud to provide electricity for the nation. cheap electricity. we have a sense of pride about that, doing a good job. >> i asked the west virginia state senator art kuykendahl, a democrat if he thought what the obama administration was doing to the coal industry was a "war on coal. what is a war? war is a fight that you go in to and you hope to survive. you may be killed. but you hope to survive. you are a
twitter, if obama wins, it's baloney. >> i believe it's a bunch of crap. i don't believe the country is as polarized as it once was. i just don't think it exists anymore. we had a black president. this is not the 1960s or the 50s. and giving guys like this attention is giving attention of the new black panther party that consists of eight people. it amplifies something that really doesn't exist. that is the case with this guy. idiot who burns the quran and causes problems but they were just a minuscule number of people. >> greg: you have to fill the bucket with things that not matter. are we this polarized or just the polish people? >> i don't think so, but i do think, you could create something here. you could create a self-fulfilling prophesy. i'm starting to get angry. i am going to move the green room. >> i want you punch bill in the face. >> i have a new manager. maybe at the end of the show. >> greg: you were saying the green room you agree with everything that the evangelicals said. >> i edit his column. i don't want to take credit. speaking punching people in the face i would
the country into a war, than was president obama. but the public also believed that president obama had gone around the world apologizing. now in the last debate, governor romney reassured that he was not as likely to take people into war as they had thought in that debate. and i think that was a calculated strategy on his part. now, you could say, "and it was illegitimate. you secretly know that he was more likely." but nonetheless, what we can measure is whether they get what he said he was going to do in the context. and i think that president obama responded to the apologizing around the world claim in a number of ways that were effective as well. and i think one of the things that we can say about debates making a difference is that, had there been debates in the goldwater/johnson election, had there been debates in the mcgovern/nixon election, i think we would not have had the blowout landslides that we had. what debates do is take the caricaturing of the challenger and give the challenger a chance to stand there and be who the challenger would like to be in front of that audience. i t

whether or not the country is better off now than it would've been, had obama not been president. we were in a deep recession. and president obama's having the difficulty of having to make the argunt that, "things are better than they would have been, had i not done what i have done." but they're still not what they ought to be. and that's a tough case for the incumbent. and governor romney's exploiting it every inch of the way. >> my favorite whopper was when paul ryan said that the reason that they don't want to say how they will change the loopholes is because they'll be attacked. people will say mean things about them. and that democrats and republicans won't be able to work together. "joe biden is partisan but i, paul ryan, know what real bipartisanship is all about." th from the st rhless, relentless, disciplined right wing unified front that i believe the nation has ever seen. this is the person who is saying, "bipartisanship is what we're all about. and you democrats don't understand what that means." >> yeah, but there's, there's one other thing. sometimes you sin by omission. an

rate of 7.9%, both sides are spinning the numbers to their advantage. president obama saying it means the country is heading in the right direction. challenger mitt romney says it is 9 million jobs short of what the president promised. and analysts say they're both right. >> there is no question we've come out of the spring lull where the economy nearly stalled out. and we have apushed further fro that, that is the good news, the bad news is it is still low. >>> and fortunes may rest in ohio, where they will spend days before the election. >>> and a group of bay area residents upset over postal programs, set up a video to catch the criminal. here is nbc bay area jodie hernandez. >> basically, they drive around the neighborhood, they're very quick, in and out. >> reporter: you're looking at evidence gathered as part of operation mail trap. a neighborhood organized sting, set on capturing mail thieves in action. >> we wanted more evidence. we wanted to find out who was doing it. so what we wanted to see, faces, more details about the car. >> reporter: suspecting postal theft in the neig

people want to see big changes. and together we can bring that kind of real change to our country. [applause] you know, four years ago candidate obama spoke to the times. he shrinks from it, from characters on sesame street and silly word games to misdirected personal attacks he knows are false. his campaign falls short of the magnitude of these times and the presidency of the last four years have fallen short of the promises of his campaign. four years ago america voted for a post partisan president but they've seen the most partisan of presidents and washington is in gridlock because of it. president obama promised to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, cana

obama, is to go to new jersey and represent the country. sean? >> sean: jamie, thank you for the report. joining me now to talk about the impact the storm may have on the presidential election, fox news political analyst juan williams and dana perino from the five. it makes me cringe. you have a tragedy like this and people are racing to politicize this. nba at nbpeople at nbc news are ridiculing mitt romney. he gave his bus early on, he was out collecting food and supplies for victims today. he's being ridiculed on nbc for that. you've got the new york "new yo" using this as an opportunity to say well, the storm proves that big government is necessary. you've got an obama e-mail during the hurricane hey, you've got a phone, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come
after the president made about forces and bayonets. people know and understand president obama is devoted to the security of this country, that he made the call to send in the seals to take out osama bin laden it was such a threat to our country. has made a real wa priority of eliminating the leadership of al qaeda. he has extricated as out of a choice -- for a choice in iraq that cause the problems in the real economy here at home and allies around the world. president obama has done a great job on national security and foreign affairs. mitt romney, you saw him in the debate on the topic of foreign policy. most of his ideas he was a neat, too, with respect to the president. -- me, too. host: lets' hear from our republican voters in new hampshire. -- let's. caller: it is amazing that are all on the puck for president obama. you want to watch a balanced news station, go to fox news. that is the truth, it really is. president george bush would have been crucified if this went down in libya. for american soldiers, people that were killed. they were just sitting around. same situat
, president obama made the case he is moving the country forward. >> we know what change looks like. and what the governor's offering ain't it. >> reporter: ohio could decide who wins the white house. not only are the candidates spending a lot of time there in these closing days. they're bombarding voters with fresh tv ads. >> who will do more for the auto industry? >> reporter: mitt romney is airing a new commercial in ohio saying workers in china benefited from the auto bailout. at a rally outside columbus, the president fired back. >> you don't scare hard working americans just to scare up some votes. >> reporter: with the race tight in nine swing states, both candidates will sprint through battleground states this weekend trying to win over a shrinking number of undecided voters and get their supporters to the polls. danielle nottingham, cbs news, the white house. >>> a bay area mother reached for a baseball bat and fought off burglars who broke into her home. da lin talked with the family this afternoon. this isn't first time their home has been burglarized. >> reporter: not the first ti

the country's future. wisconsin we've lost just under 100,000 jobs under president obama. we've talked about thing that is affect families and affect neighborhoods and health care and jobs. wisconsin really has suffered as much as almost any state with the loss of those jobs in the slowdown in economic activity. it's punishing the working people of the state. so what i would say to you in general terms is that we need a better economy. we need to have more jobs. we need to have a better future. so everybody's future is going to get better when this economy gets back on its feet. and it's not 43 months of over % unemployment. that doesn't help working people, it doesn't help anybody. so we have to turn that around. that's what governor romney is focused on. host: let me get your perspective on this. he just makes this perspective. how would you respond to that? guest: well, having introduced him a couple of times he's anything but that. i will tell you this. you talk about transparency. mitt romney's economic plan is plan for the future has been on his website for months. one of the comecal t
is supposed to be a business expert. it says nothing about the future of this country under president obama's second administration. and something else about michael bloomberg. staten island is in ruins. one-third of manhattan is without power for five days. he will have the new york city marathon start in staten island and run throughout the five boroughs through the midst of devastation. it is more than that, it is elitism. i appreciate your callers that call and with their religious and other beliefs. i am a political science guy. i have to tell you, michael bloomberg is an opportunist. you violated the new york city charter by running for a third term as mayor. we are in a very dire state here and i wish republicans run the country would offer us new york republicans help and an opportunity to really balance out the political system here. host: thank you for the call this morning. if a time for a few more calls. all weekend long we will be featuring the history and literary life of vermont capital city with a population of just about 8000 people. the smallest united states state capitol
administration by the department of transportation in 2009 by president barack obama. he has over see the disbursement throughout the country through the american reinvestment act and has done so meeting every milestone established by that act. getting money into hands of transit operators whose budgets were severely strained by the worse economic downturn since our great depression. please welcome fta administrator peter rogof. [applause] >> well thank you mayor lee and let me just say as the federal transit administrator it's great to be in a federal transit city. as many people know a rail connection was promised to the people of union square and chinatown going on two decades. they made that promise because this quarter is the most densely populated quarter in the entire western united states that doesn't have an adequate rail connection and that promise was made because we have the opportunity here to cut the commute for tens of thousands of people everyday in half by this investment. the vast majority of the people don't own a car. they depend on transit. well today through p
because it seems romney's solution is a big huge tax cut for the wealthy in this country. president obama came in with the bush recession and he's put the stimulus in place and he has put in many other policies that have helped this country stabilize and created 5 million jobs. and what will mitt romney do? cut taxes. that's not a solution. mitt romney has no credibility on domestic policy or international policy. if you're solution for everything that ails us is tax cuts, that's not going to work. look at the bush tax cuts from 04. in the debate, he agreed with president obama on 95% of everything and when he tried to get president obama on libya, he failed. he has no credibility. he will say anything to win and i think that's why president obama will prevail on november 7 because he deserves reelection. he's a great president. host: we can see mitt romney talking to supporters there in jacksonville florida. we'll also have mitt romney campaigning at 2: 15 eastern in virge which is is in the central part of the state. and also after observing some of the damage on the new jersey coast to
, the best surrogate on this planet is bill clinton. former president has been all over the country for obama. he's lost his voice he's working so hard. here he was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and -- you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting ought the attention but it's great. >> he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read the new york post because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt rom
at the problems holding this country back. the first will be to grant wavers to all states from obama care so we can begin it's repeal. the launch of a sweeping review of all obama era regulations will follow with a eye to repair or eliminating any regulation that kills jobs or hurts business. every small business person, every job creator will know for the first time in four years the government of the united states likes them and loves the jobs and higher wages they bring to our fellow americans. [applause] we've almost forgotten what a real recovery looks like. what americans can achieve when we limit government instead of limiting the dreams of our fellow americans. and that's going to change. now you can choose your future. you know what you need to know. you can stay on the path of the last four years or you can choose real change. you know that if the president were to be re-elected, he would still be enable to work with the people in congress. he's ignored them, he's tacked them, blamed them. the debt ceiling is going to come up again and shut down and default will be threatened chilling
'd still say this is the test -- it's on obama's racket. i'm struck by the way in which romney as he presents himself to the country is different from the way that he was demonized early in this campaign by the obama advertising. people see him in the debates, it turns out that he's a likable guy. and chris: i agree with that. >> and sounding moderate, cheerful and optimistic and positive. that's a very different -- >> and for a reversal -- chris: they weren't ready for jekyll. they were selling hyde. >> my gut tells me no, partly baurgs the economic message has moved away from him in the accepts that using greece and some of these countries as a scare tactic to say this is why we need to force government spending cuts and people are reassessing that and realize the damage that it does become, even on wall street becoming more skeptical of what a romney president would mean for growth and the federal reserve. chris: katty. >> i think if you -- if it comes down to ohio, and my hunch is that obama, look at joe's poll, obama is still looking fairly strong in ohio. i guess if you had to
president obama, the person. it is about his failed presidency and failed leadership. our country is going in the wrong direction. and mitt romney is the only leader who can turn this economy around. did americans back to work, and build the better america our parents worked and sacrificed to make possible. that is the opportunity before us. and it is the one that we must seize, for the sake of our children and the future of our great nation. god bless your families and may god continue to bless the united states of america. >> watch our coverage of the presidential candidates pless debates from key house, senate, and governor's races. a debate between the candidates in the north carolina governor's race. a discussion on the role of volunteers in the presidential campaigns. after that, lawyers previewed the supreme court's oral argument into upcoming cases. i newsmakers, rand paul talks about campaign 2012. he will also talk about why he is pac is buying ad supporting todd akin and richard murdock. >> it is a great source of the intermission for the public. if you want to know what is goin

that obama's victory could create a major ideological shift in the country. and obama's losing could have something to do with where we were a decade ago. it can be very unique and very promising. we could be doing some major advancement that would be great for the environment. obviously, the youth vote is very critical. it is also very unusual that people care so much. [inaudible] so you are lucky and blessed to be listening to and to be part of this election. >> tim? >> though, i wanted people to step up a little bit. we talked about fiscally conservative people, and i would like to see some socially liberal liberals. we didn't get into the juggler or civil liberties were a bunch of other things. and i would like to see something from the left. as far as i can see, we have gone butkus on all those issues. every couple of years, there is a big debate that are held in some false. a connection between libertarians and conservatives, is coming to an end? my friend, jonah goldberg, says it has a pretty good idea -- libertarians are useful because they ask the question should the government b
, independent caller. hello.: i have one thing to say. our country is divided since mr. obama has been there. to me it seems is as divided to this country to such a point that people are at each throats. someone to pull us together. i think mitt romney will do a little bit better together and pulling people together because he has done it in his own state. we would hope that after this is all said and done a new efforts to not spending money we do not have. i cannot do it. you cannot do it. i do not think there is a list around there that can. we have to get people up there realize that it is not their money. it is our money. host: let's look at some comments that have come in on facebook. he set at only voting for democrats because the gop has lost touch with objective reality. they rant about the national debt and less tax cuts are involved then the national debt and deficits think no difference whatsoever. a delight to read the rest or any of the other comments are faced the pages c-span. beatrice joins us from maryland. hello. caller: i was just listening to the statements of some of the
in new jersey and new york. i was on the phone with president obama and the ceo's of the country briefing him. >> some of your crews will not get any rest. >> would make available the crews if there's a need elsewhere and we will help them. >> you do still want people to: if there are outages. >> please call. be sure everybody stays away from a downed wires. don't run a generator inside your house. >> thank you and good luck with the rest of the repair work. >> thank you. >> now traffic pulse 11 and insta-weather plus together. >> we are looking at a busy morning rush. we have an accident at liberty road in sykesville. police are arriving on the scene. some closures at northern parkway. 12 miles per hour in the outer loop approaching edmondson. we have some lane closures because of a downed tree. watch for an accident on southbound 95 down towards the capital beltway. heavy delays on southbound 295. all but the left lane is closed on the capital beltway at 95. this is 295. off and on traffic is backed up down towards the capital beltway. you can see there are some southbound delays coming
in the country. there was one component that bothers the obama campaign in the most dire state when the president was leading by so many points. independence is trending toward romney, and that is why he's going to pennsylvania to try to get independent votes even though pennsylvania democrats outnumber republicans registered voters by over a million people. he feels the election should be, can be won with independence, and that component is going to romney. >> mark, if we drew lines on that today on the trail map, you would actually see barack obama and mitt romney crisscrossing each other throughout the midwest today. you tend to think it that where they go is where their attentions are at this point. so, how in play are wisconsin and ohio right now as far as swinging this one? >> well, wisconsin, the president won by 14 points where's trying to hold on and to get the one-vote victory to get all of the electoral votes. he did very well in northwestern wisconsin, a white rural area. he flipped 12 of 19 counties, which wasup pret precedented. in ohio -- unprecedented and in ohio, he won by five

at this point, a large part because obama is doing better with white voters that he is across the country, in large part in the north and west of ohio and northeast of ohio, the industrial belt where the auto bailout made a difference. it is so much of a problem for romney there that rob portman on thursday, introducing romney in defiance, ohio, to a huge crowd, said, "we have got to talk about this auto bailout thing tonight." they are still trying to explain it. >> can romney win without ohio? >> yes, but it is a tough one to reach. if obamacare is ohio, he will carry it was gone -- if obama carries ohio, he will carry wisconsin and it will be a difficult reached for romney. >> a virginia? >> virginia will still probably end up in obama's camp. >> i just look at the polls when we started the program. romney is up by one pnt or two. >> you can pick your polling and in virginia, because another shows that obama is up in virginia. but he has been running strong in virginia, and with the heavy onslaught by romney, it still shows the northern virginia area, which will be very important, but
this is a lumbering and slow-moving storm? >> right. i think the obama campaign feels good about their early vote operations across the country, but it's hard to say. to hogan's point, one of the things that may happen here and both campaigns have to deal with it, it disrupts voter contact. so the folks that go door to door, the folks making phone calls, that might be harder if lines go down. the other thing is polling. when these campaigns are looking at decisions over the next week, where to spend their resources, in a state like virginia or new hampshire or ohio, it may be hard to poll folks during the course of this week. in a sense you're operating in the dark. but i think overall the obama campaign feels good about where they are from an early vote standpoint. >> aaccoccording to politico th president has retain the lead. on the flipside we saw a slate of mixed state polls that took place over the weekend. 49/49, complete tie right there. the virginia "washington post" poll has obama hanging onto the four-point lead and philadelphia enquirer, 49/42. two different polls here. minnesota is tr
in far southwestern virginia, coal country, inhospitable to president obama even though it tens to be democrat but it will depress the vote there. communities that are flooded, communities where it will be difficult if people to get around, in places like new jersey and eastern pennsylvania and new york and connecticut, these could tend to be more democrat areas and people would have difficulty there and it would depress president obama's turn out but we have a long time between now and election day and people fired up about the election one way or the other and i suspect most will try and make their way to the poll. >>neil: but if power is out in a lost the states and they don't extend the election that would be unlikely, you are dealing with paper ballots and manual accounts and it is a long night, right? karl: very long. most of the ballots tend to be counseled in a precinct level so it is manageable to get them done in a couple of hours and get the ballots and the tallies submitted to the counties but a lot of counties in the affected region are having to dust off contingen
